Miller to test rail lines

THE FSC will conduct tests on rail lines using rail carts capable of carrying double the payload of existing ones.

Executive chairman Abdul Khan said the six-tonne carts brought in from Australia were being tested in preparation for the start of harvest next month.

"These carts will greatly enhance our ability to deliver cane to all mills," he said.

"We are checking to see how they perform on our existing rail system before making a decision to purchase more in the future."

Prime Minister and Sugar Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama said the purchase of new rail carts and locomotives was part of the government's plans to assume the takeover of all rail and road cane transport to better manage delivery to mills.
